Miami Booty Music Pioneers 2 Live Crew Planning A Reunion Tour

The 2 Live Crew‘s As Nasty As They Wanna Be was a cassette tape that everyone who grew up in the Eighties owned but kept carefully hidden from their parents’ prying eyes (and ears). While certainly not the first rap crew to brag about their sexual conquests, Luther Campbell and his posse of perpetually horny MCs made waves by pushing their sex rhymes deep into XXX rated territory. Their lewd and lascivious “pornocore” material ultimately caught the eye of Florida legislators and got them, as Luke would famously put it, “Banned In The U.S.A.”

Well, nearly 20 years after disbanding, Luther Campbell announced over the weekend —at the Sundance Film Festival, no less!!!— that 2 Live Crew would be getting back together for a reunion tour this fall. You may recall that the group got together for a one-off performance at VH1′s 2010 Hip Hop Honors show, but this time around, the group will be taking their show on the road. No details about the tour have been announced, but Uncle Luke promises that “We’re going to perform the songs and everybody’s going to be excited.” Um, hopefully not TOO excited, if you catch our drift…
